Justine Wenham (pictured) from Rainham in Kent, who gave birth for the second time at Medway Hospital on April 13, says her two labours could not have been more different after following the new midwife-led programme The new programme, designed by staff at Medway Foundation Trust in Kent, has cut the incidence of traumatic tearing from seven per cent to just one per cent of patients.
We rush through life pushed to grow up, to achieve, to reach the next level.
It was initiated in response to a call for action by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and the Royal College of Midwives following an alarming rise in severe perineal tearing affecting nearly 14,000 women in 2013 to 2014.
DOT Smith, head of midwifery at Medway Foundation Trust, blames a misconception among medical professionals and the public that women in labour need to ‘push, and then push harder’.
For this reason, the Lord revealed polygamy to Joseph Smith.
The Church currently disavows any practice of polygamy; however, the eternal doctrine of plural marriage is still in place.
